The freight industry has an unquestionably outsized environmental impact, but it's also among the most vital engines that keep the world turning. On episode 8 of InTek Freight & Logistics: The Podcast, we spotlight a program that's focused on transportation and shipping sustainability, the EPA's SmartWay partnership, with Region 5 Environmental Protection Specialist Tony Maietta.
Tony discusses the program, how it's evolved over nearly 20 years, its accomplishments to this point and how shippers, carriers and logistics companies can get involved. Tony also talks about electric vehicles, clean air regulations, ports, grants to help reduce fleets' emissions and more.
